 Hi All

I'm working for Freescale Semiconductor on the i.MX series linux BSP.
Now we have android running well on i.MX515 platform, and hope to push
android kernel repo into android.git.kernel.org.
Then what's the process need us to follow? How reviews will be done?
And what we should provide?

Can anybody kindly answer the questions, and give any suggestion?
Thanks.

 This question is more likely to get answered on the android-kernel
mailing list.

 Or the repo mailing list. But before you ask them, read this:

You can't push to other people's git trees, why would you want to do this?


Patches showing the changes you want made would be helpful :)

thanks,

HOWTO push kernel repo into android.git.kernel.org?

 Hi Greg

Sorry for confusing you. Actually our company, Freescale now wants to
put i.mx series kernel supporting android to android.git.kernel.org.
Just like the git: qualcomm kernel/msm.git and TI kernel/omap.git, we
would like to create kernel/imx.git.
Then we want to know how to make effort to create kernel/imx.git on
android.git.kernel.org?

 Hi,



I would like to understand why there is a kernel branch for each 
architecture.
I suppose that the only change are driver/architecture depends so maybe 
there
are few patches that support the architecuture or I miss somenthing?

Regards Michael

You mean OHA? Freescale has not joined OHA yet.

Then why there's kernel/omap.git here? If patches are all in mainline,
it will not need a separate tree.

How about our kernel patches for android porting? Seems there's no
proper repo for us to push.

Thanks all for your views.
Freescale really needs to build a public repo firstly, actually we're
making effort on this.
Before we can join OHA, I think public repo with local manifest is a
good solution.

I like Freescale doing that. May I know if the MX515 Android port is
fully completed?

Thanks
Eric

1. Notepad tutorial revised with hosted database

After reading the Nodepad tutorial for Android, which uses the SQLlite
database, I decided to write a version of the same app that uses an
off-board database.  I replaced the SQLlite database adapter class
with a NextDBAdapter class that communicates with the NextDB.net
servers to execute queries, inserts, updates and deletes.  I also
enhanced the example code to make the database calls outside the main
thread, using AsyncTask.  The code is intentionally simple and short,
but it provides a good starting point to using the NextDB.net system
to store application data off-board-- in the "cloud" (I apologize for
the buzzwordery).

Here is the code:

http://code.google.com/p/nextdb/source/browse/#svn/trunk/mobile/android/

The benefits of using an off-board database, over the on-board SQLlite
database is that the data can be shared with other apps, allowing
phone to phone communication.  Also since NextDB has both REST and
AJAX API's, you can also communicate between the phone and the web.
This is an overview on the NextDB.net wiki:

http://nextdb.net/wiki/en/Android

Enjoy,

2. uncaught timeoutexception in socket

Hey,
I want to connect my client via socket to a server. If I don't start
the server (to test my error-handlung) the client crashes because of
an uncaught timeout exception.

The socket creation is in a try-catch block, but the timeout-exception
is not caught.

try {
                        InetAddress serverAddr = 
InetAddress.getByName(SERVERIP);
                        Log.i(LOG_TAG, "Connecting..");

                        clientSocket = new Socket(serverAddr, PORT); -> 
Timeoutexception
                        Log.i(LOG_TAG, "Connection done!");

                        // open OutputStream and InputStream
                        Log.i(LOG_TAG, "Open data streams");
                        out = new 
DataOutputStream(clientSocket.getOutputStream());
                        in  = new 
DataInputStream(clientSocket.getInputStream());

                        Log.i(LOG_TAG, "Set client keep-alive");
                        clientSocket.setKeepAlive(true);

                } catch (UnknownHostException e) {
                        Log.v(LOG_TAG, e.toString());
                        statusCode = Protocol.UNKNOWN_HOST;

                }catch (SocketException e) {
                        Log.v(LOG_TAG, e.toString());
                        statusCode = Protocol.SOCKET_ERROR;

                }catch (IOException e) {
                        Log.v(LOG_TAG, e.toString());
                        statusCode = Protocol.IO_ERROR;

                }catch (Exception e) {
                        Log.v(LOG_TAG, e.toString());
                        statusCode = Protocol.SOCKET_ERROR;
                }

Has anybody experienced the same problem?

Thanks in advance and regards,
Lara
